Phillip Henry & Hannah Martin live in Concert @ the Metropole Guesthouse

Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin are back in Australia! Performing in Woodford, the Cygnet and Illawarra Folk Festivals, plus shows in Brisbane, Melbourne, Hobart, Sydney, + Katoomba. Launching their new album under a new name: "Edgelarks". 

With Edgelarks, fly in on the tailwind of BBC award winning duo Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin. The new band name comes with a new project, that takes the roots of their previous work, from the traditional musics of the British Isles to Indian classical slide guitar to the stomping roots party of Henry's beatbox harmonica, and adds a strong stem of original writing, running wilder with each repeat play.

The duo began their musical journey together while living in a small caravan in the hills near Exmouth, Devon. They were playing in alt-roots outfit, traveling from festival to festival, tent to tent, wandering the highways, byways and old forgotten pathways of these islands; following in the footsteps of the ancient troubadour tradition, picking up tunes, songs and stories along the way. Spotted busking on the seafront at Sidmouth Folk Festival by champion of independent music Steve Knightley, they soon found themselves touring nationally, supporting the likes of Show of Hands and Seth Lakeman, and eventually winning the prestigious "Best Duo" Award at the 2014 BBC Folk Awards.

EDGELARKS (both the name of the new album and to be the new name for the duo) is about transitions. Their most innovative work to date, bringing a palette of new textures, the album explores the idea of the liminal: places, people and times, the straddling of boundaries and thresholds.

The Lancashire/Devon duo made their first appearance in Australia back in March/April 2015, performing to standing ovations at Port Fairy Folk Festival, Blue Mountains Music Festival and Fairbridge Folk Festival, as well as a string of house concerts, folk clubs and music venues. They return in January 2018, launching their new album, some of which was inspired by their experiences on tour here, particularly in Tasmania.

"Imaginative dobro, guitar and harmonica work ... evocative fiddle and banjo playing and enchanting vocals." – ★★★½ Tony Hillier, The Australian.

"One of the best duos on the planet." – BBC.

"Evocative stories, wonderful arrangements – Henry and Martin stand out from the current flood of young British folk musicians." – Mojo ★★★★
